Vending machines are still not a frequent sight in Pakistan. Vendi is now Pakistan’s largest vending machine network, with intentions to change.
Vendi has installed more than 100 vending machines across corporate offices, educational institutions, and hospitals in Pakistan sponsored by Wavetec, Pakistan’s oldest technology multinational firm.
These machines stock over 50 brands of snacks, chocolates, and chilled drinks to provide a quick and convenient snack 24/7, particularly when cannot run to the store.
“We have worked very hard for very long to give Pakistan its first smart vending machine. Now, Pakistanis should provide Vendi a platform to grow an ecosystem of machines from a hundred to over five thousand machines,” shared Nidal Faruq, Head of Sales and Marketing at Vendi.
The machines also have a dedicated app, to locate nearest Vendi, buy multiple items in one go, check live inventory levels, transfer the balance to friends and purchase mobile credit. Most of these machines accept digital payments via EasyPaisa and JazzCash.
Vendi machines also make donations to The Citizen’s Foundation and Shaukat Khanum Memorial Trust.
The machines are an easy choice for a quick snack, they are also used for advertising digital signage, and have an LED ticker facility to share updates.
“Vendi provides great customer experience and expediency to fulfill snacking and caffeine needs on the go, said Ahmed Fraz Malik, CEO Wavetec, and Vendi. “We have done this by establishing an ever-growing network of technologically advanced and first of their kind smart vending machines in Pakistan.”
